The Method Actors


This blog has been around for a little over a year, so as a celebration this week I'll be providing FIVE entries (one per day, M-F) to vote on instead of the customary one.

Happy Voting!

Determine a band's leader by analyzing a publicity photo.

A band's inclusion on this blog reflects neither an endorsement nor a criticism of its music. This post is merely intended as a spotlight on the inner political workings of a collection of individuals who are in the midst of a cooperative, creative endeavor.

The Process:
You, dear reader, please answer the question, "Who's in charge here?"

After sufficient discussion has taken place, a verdict can then be passed based on a majority vote.

THE VERDICT (Updated!)

Whoa, this was a squeaker! I really had no idea how this vote would turn out. Congrats to the fella in the black shirt.

I'm sure the Boy Scouts of America are thrilled to have this front man as their poster child. I'll have to say they are equally in charge as the possibility of either of them in any kind of power stance is freaking me out.

If the guy in front is a boy scout, then metro Simon Cowell is his troop leader.

McGone said...

Freaky Joel McHale is the leader, because Metro Simon Cowell likes to be behind.

Soul Patch is in charge. Not the guy -with- the soul patch. Just the soul patch. The guy to whom Soul Patch is attached is a tool. The guy behind the guy to whom Soul Patch is attached aspires to be a tool. Now, I must go put my head under a table leg until this image has been cleansed from my mind. Honestly, how could high school bullies have allowed this to happen?

BSA is boy scouts? I am defo of a different culture, I thought it meant the motorbikes BSA....and was wondering if he's standing like that as his knee pain is so bad, devotees of BSa's have a dicky knee on account of the agricultural nature of the kickstart.
So I think BSA boy is in charge, he has that sucking lemons look of disasppointment which leaders affect in order to maintain their superiority.

"Honestly, how could high school bullies have allowed this to happen?"

LOL & Good question : )

These guys are a new kind of scary. The one in the front is in chage, and god help us all.

PS: Good picks this week Splotchy!

Obviously the dude in the back is totally the top. He doesn't need to be out front to front the band, the look in his eyes tells you all you need to know...

Fag up front.

Black shirt - he looks like he's got his hand where the sun don't shine on white shirt (but white shirt looks like he's enjoying it).

Bonnie S said...

Black shirt is in charge. Guy in white shirt looks like a puppet??!!

Sampada said...

black shirt - there's something about his hair - if he can keep those on edge, i m sure taking charge over white shirt would be piece of cake.

Angela S. said...

Oh seriously, no one is in charge here. No one. Is that an option?

Splotchy said...

Oh seriously, no one is in charge here. No one. Is that an option?

Certainly, it's an option.

The Imaginary Reviewer said...

The one at the back is the ventriloquist, the one at the front is the dummy.

BeckEye said...

I'll have to say that The Boy Scouts are in charge.

Dealer Man said...

My first thought wat that some unpictured Scout Master was in charge. Then I realized no Scout Master would allo haircuts as tragic as those.

Obviously Spongebob is in charge as evidenced by the fashion statements made.

Anonymous said...

Neither.They look as if they don't know the meaning of the word leader !

Freida Bee said...

I will argue that bottoms can be in charge and shall go with the guy in the front.

A Jaded Girl said...

I believe the babydoll t-shirts these tools are wearing are in charge.

The power of the babydoll t-shirts is causing these guys to pose in a very affeminate way.

Babydoll t-shirts you are in charge!
